Dhaulagiri Circuit Trekking

General Overview

Dhaulagiri was first discovered in 1808, and it was thought to be the highest mountain in the world for westerners. It was assumed the highest peak for 30 years before its place was taken by Kanchenjunga. Dhaulagiri literally means ‘white mountain’ which justifies a magnificent peak rising as a giant shoulder of shining ice and snow. Dhaulagiri trekking in Nepal is a quite tough but you will never forgot the awesome view of this region.

Dhaulagiri is the 7th highest mountain in the world. Be ready for something challenging adventure in Nepal through Dhaulagiri trekking.
Dhaulagiri lies north – west of Pokhara culminating to its highest point at the eastern end. Dhaulagiri is almost unique in the world in terms of its rise above local terrain where it rises to 7000m over the Kali Gandaki gorge to the south east in about 30 km of aerial distance. In fact, Kali Gandaki is dramatic as two eight thousand mountains Annapurna I & Dhaulagiri both stand near the river facing each other over a deep valley.

Travel by bus from Kathmandu to Pokhara and head west further to Baglung. Follow part of the trail about 3 days towards Dhorpatan hunting reserve area and turn north to the base camp of Dhaulagiri. Low hill with terraced rice field and villages gradually gives away to rugged mountain landscape. In about 7 days you reach base camp. The pass through from base camp to the ridge is steep and long. Cross the ridge at French pass (5100 m) and descend to Tukuche base camp. Continue to pass through snow condition until you cross the pass. Because of the wind, altitude and snow the visibility is usually very low while crossing the main ridge to Tukuche. After crossing the pass you descend to a high pastureland for overnight camp. Next day make further steep descend to Tukuche. You are back to civilization as you follow the main trail to Jomsom. Fly out from Jomsom to Pokhara and travel further to Kathmandu or any other destination according to your plan.
